what's in a name?

This is where I feature a character from an anime and explain their name meanings. If you'd like to request a name meaning, let me know! ^_^




Name: Yukimura Seiichi
Anime: Prince of Tennis

Meaning:

Yukimura is a wonderful character that has lots of potential... His name is quite fitting to his character as well. "Yuki" is the kanji for peace or happiness, and "mura" means village. I think this reflects the serenity of his nature very well.

The more interesting part about his name is the fact that it stems from the historic Japanese war hero, Sanada Yukimura. A brilliant tactician and expert in the art of war, he almost led a successful campaign against the then-shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu. He is ultimately betrayed and meets a tragic end. I think it's interesting indeed, that the powerhouse tennis team Rikkaidai's Captain (Yukimura) and Vice Captain (Sanada) are named after this true life hero.

"Sei" means soul or life force. This of course, speaks to Yukimura's passionate feelings toward tennis, and his incredible will to overcome his suffering to become greater than he is. Ichi is a common ending for a boy's name.

* Anime winamp skins *

Anime Winamp Skins
by athena


EDIT: I've found a place that can host my skins! I won't have to rotate them around anymore! I will be adding new skins here periodically, so do check back. I will announce new postings on my sidebar, probably in the "news" section. ^_^

Please note that I have a 10 MB bandwidth limit per 24 hour period. So if the download links are not available, please try again in a few hours.

Ha...well, I just discovered how to make my own winamp skins via a program called skinamp, and I've been at it like a maniac...lol. It's a pretty simple program, and anyone who can cut and paste stuff in Photoshop can make a skin. It's so much fun...hehe... Even though it's pretty basic. Anyway, you can tell I go for a real basic look, with no frills. I don't use the equilizer anyway...

You can also download my featured skin, which I'll have on my sidebar. Click on images for larger view.
